Mohiniyattam Nettichutti

Among the classical dance forms of India, Mohiniyattam that originated from the State of Kerala can be singled out for its admirable and characteristic body movements. The dignified and subtle movements of the dancer convey the infinite suggestiveness of love.

The characteristic ornaments used in Mohiniyattam are marked by their use of gold or gold plated jewelry. Usually the Mohiniyattam jewellery (jewelry) set consists of necklace (maangamala), nettichutti, vanki (armband), oddiyanam (waistband), and jimikky (swinging ear ornaments).
